Kulture House Dubai is part boutique, part cafe, part florist and a whole lot of inspiring. Join The Huntr as we present a look inside this Jumeirah-based, homegrown gem…
Located next to The Huntr’s favourite plant-based haven Comptoir 102, Kulture House is unlike anywhere else in the city. The colourful and magical interiors have been inspired by different cultures and countries including Russia, South America, Morocco, Africa and, of course, the UAE and GCC region. The homegrown concept encompasses a store, florist (by homegrown company Fleurology), cafe, art gallery and community space. The boutique offers the opportunity to shop some of the best homegrown fashion talents in the region alongside a curated mix of homewares, accessories, books and more (making it the ideal destination to buy a special gift). Plus there’s a hidden corner displaying various portraits, including some of the Founding Father of the UAE – the late, great Sheikh Zayed. And lastly, there’s a small gallery space featuring Middle Eastern artworks, which is currently being managed by Pro Art Gallery.
In terms of seating inside the cafe space, there are ample options for small and large groups inside plus a spacious outdoor area for the cooler months. The complimentary WiFi and cosy corners make this an ideal place to study or get work done and the menu offers dishes that are inspired by the East and the West. Breakfast is served all day and encompasses pancakes, egg dishes and a traditional Arabic spread. There is also a vegan-friendly Acai Bowl. Outside of the most important meal of the day, there are two healthy and hearty salads plus a mix of sharing plates for lunch and dinner featuring salmon, pasta and ample vegetarian and vegan creations. Drinks-wise, Kulture House is alcohol-free and serves speciality coffee powered by Dubai-based Encounter Coffee, organic teas from Avantcha and an assortment of mocktails, soft drinks and organic pressed juices.
The Huntr visited for brunch on a busy weekend. We tried the Herb Omelette (45AED), which comes with brie cheese and is topped with potato chips and opted to add Beef Bacon (14AED) as a side. Plus the Burrata Fig Salad (60AED), which was our clear favourite. The flavourful and mildly spicy Teriyaki Tofu (45AED) and for dessert – the decadent Fried Oreos (45AED). We washed this all down with a mixed blend (Colombia, Brazil, Ethiopia) Cortado (23AED), which had nutty and citrusy notes and the Turmeric Twist (35AED) and Tropical Bliss (30AED) organic pressed juices.
